The ways people communicate are changing. Likewise, traditional PR and marketing methods are becoming increasingly irrelevant. It’s a conversation; if you don’t get in, you’ll get left out. To help ease the transition into new media campaigns, socialTNT explores social media technologies and practices with a focus on their PR and marketing applications.
Launched in September 2007, socialTNT attracts a diverse readership that includes novices like college students and small business owners, as well as seasoned professionals and social media enthusiasts. Chris Lynn and contributing writer Marie Williams evaluate social media campaigns, review the latest new media tools, and offer tips and tricks into social media strategy.
socialTNT recently announced iTunes distribution for their most popular feature, “3Q’s in 3Min,” a weekly video interview with top reporters, analysts, social media experts, industry leaders and anyone else using the new media tools to promote or market their business.
